Pat,

Nick, a friend of his and I had tough sledding until this afternoon. Nick ran into a big-time school of pannies and we commenced to having a blast.

On a side note, I have to laugh every time I see the word "striper" used in place of white bass. Just for the record, there are no stripers in deez' parts.

Did a lot better than me! After the sun went away I think the bite was gone, where I was at anyways. Collectively we missed a couple & marked many. Got some nice windburn outta the deal.

marbles I was out there Thursday a.m. and the ice was 2ft. + everywhere I drilled. It was my first time on the lake so I was a bit nervous too until I started drilling. I saw you heading out this a.m. Otter. Was wondering how you did. Sounds like you had some fun. It was pretty slow for me on Thursday.

I was there but didn't see the pros. Lost a nice pike in the morning and found some gills in the afternoon to save the day.

luckycrank, I thought I saw your truck today, I almost said something to TO but I wasn't sure!

As stated before the ice is in great shape for driving and the snow cover is being knocked down with the warm weather.

When the sun is out think "shaded" areas of the lake, we found the most active fish to be under the deepest snow banks.

Whole lot of nothing for us. Worked Crams, the E end, and the main basin "villages" with nothing to show for it. Out before sunrise and off the lake at 11 a.m. Family down from the cities and I thought at the very least I could fall back on the white bass bite. Nothing.

Saw a perm with a door ripped off though, any stories behind that?

Also check the point directly north of the access in 25-27 fow

real close to the break line

I found they wanted to chase, ratheer than eat.

when they gang up on your jig with out eating it lift it about 2 feet and jiggle your bait real fast and they'll pound it. (assuming you have electronics).

      so i booked my first trip to mille lacs for a week on the southern portion in september for my pike fishing trip with my wife and dog. we agreed that we would try smaller lakes in the future and we actually went bigger!! 😀🙄 man that's a big (almost) round lake. i'm not asking for secret spots, but a push in the right direction please. i will look at my navionics this week and see how it looks but do i just go out and find some points or maybe work the backs of the bays? shallow or deep in mid september? i would think that first i would need to find some weeds. i always think weeds and pike. from looking at satellite pics it's hard for me to tell weeds or any other type of structure. any of your suggestions would really be helpful.  i know it's not rocket science to catch pike but any time that I could save looking would be a great help. you have all been really kind. thank you all! chris

      Tale of two days this last weekend. On Saturday, couldn't pull a fish out of the lake. On Sunday, had a four fish walleye limit by 11am, with a bonus perch as well.   Graphed fish on Saturday, just couldn't get 'em to move. On Sunday, went back and no fish to be found. Decided to get out of my comfort zone, so i started working spots that i hadn't been to in two years or more. 2nd spot i tried had 'em stacked. Not huge, but consistent 12-15". Good size to keep.   My take-away was get out and try some spots you haven't been to in a while.

      Rick where is Elephant lake ? I have been going to Sand Point and Crane since 1983. We fish mainly in Sand Point ...Staeges, Grassy and Browns. We are tenting at Jensen site.

      The sweltering heat, high humidity values, and intermittent thunderstorms have certainly provided some challenges for anglers but even as we enter the dogdays of summer the fish are still on the chow! As we all know there is never any shortage of action when one sets out to target Bass. Smallmouth Bass can be found along the deep weed lines, rocks, and sunken humps. Try using a Drop-Shot Rig tipped with a Leech. Largemouth on the other hand can be found working the weeds inside and outside the lines using Tubes, Spinner Baits, and Carolina Rigs. In the early morning, try working docks, shoreline structure and swimming platforms next to sharp drop-offs. Of course, usually by this time of year we have shifted our focus to chasing Large Slab Crappies. The weed beds are holding large numbers of both Crappies and Sunfish. Pay especially close attention to the cabbage along deeper drop-offs. Slip-Bobbers using live bait or plastics, Small Swim Baits, Spinners, Beetle Spins are all working well, these buggers have been hungry!! The Walleye bite is also one that has yet to relinquish to the torrid, humid conditions. A lot of techniques have still been producing good numbers of fish. Anything from pulling Spinners in the weeds, Lindy Rigs, Slip-Bobbers, jigs tipped with Leeches, Crawlers or Chubs… Cranks, Shiver Minnows and the list goes on!! It really is Dealer’s Choice it seems, trolling Cranks on the mid-lake flats has been best toward the evening hours until after dark, Spinners have been enticing them during the mid-day, as well as jigging raps for the walleye found out over the deep structure. -Cheers!

      I live just off the Rum near walbo. Water high deer flies horrible. Yes good smallie and walleye when water down to normal. To high right now in my opinion.

      I wonder if there is any connection to the fact that when the dnr guys pull their seine on my beach they get 150 or so nice perch? Run up to 4 or 5 inches.   They seine at a number of places around the lake 4 times every July and have been for many years.   This is way above what I can remember as typical.  And that is without the young of the year which are still too little to show up much.

      I fished last Tuesday and Wednesday. Caught 5 walleyes in Lower WF on lindy and leach. 4 of the fish were caught within an hour on Tuesday early evening. Mornings were slow both days. Heading up again on Monday for a few days. Hopefully weather will stay stable.
